- Students in the intervention group reported a significantly higher rate of decline in verbal victimization compared to control students. The difference was only significant among males.
- For physical victimization, the decline in the intervention group compared to the control group was in the expected direction but did not reach statistical significance (p=0.069). This near significant difference was accounted for by males.
